    Default Hello from Vancouver BC

    Hi,
    I have been self learning and playing at home for about four years now. Haven’t had time to venture out to ukulele night but hope to have time in the new year!
    I bought a Cordoba 24C which I have really enjoyed. As I practice I’m getting a little more discerning about the quality of sound and resonance. I am now On the look out for a tenor as my next ukulele. Having researched and listened to many options I am currently looking for a used Takumi Tenor or possibly a Kanile’a or similar.
    This forum has been a great resource to me. Thanks!
    Kate

    Hey, welcome neighbour!

    Lots of good ukulele possibilities in the Metro Vancouver area. Vanukes, White Rock Uke Circle and lots of classes and even the orchestra at Ruby Ukes.

    And, a bit of shameless advertising here...I have a Kamaka tenor for sale right now (DM me if you want any details ).

    Thanks for the possible Ukes gatherings! I don’t know anything about Kamaka. The Kanilea and Takumi mahogany tenors caught my eye/ear so far while reading and listening to reviews.
